EXTRA DOG'S INFORMATION
At six months of age, the state of Iowa requires all dogs to be spayed or neutered in order to play with other dogs in a daycare facility. We offer one on one playtime with a staff member for pups who have not been spayed or neutered after that point. If your pup is in heat or begins a heat cycle, we will not be able to board them or have them attend daycare. If they go into heat while they are with us, we require a designated pick up person or we will take them to the vet to be boarded at owner’s cost.
BEHAVIOR AND PERSONALITY:
FEEDING, MEDICATIONS AND HEALTH:
Feedings: At ACCR, we do feedings at the following times: 6 am, 11 am, and 6 pm. Additional or altered feeding schedules are available. All food and treats must be sent in a resealable container (Ziploc bags preferred) either portioned out by meal or we can measure at each feeding. We will confirm feeding times, amount, and type of food at every check-in.
At ACCR, we do our medications at the following times: 6 am, 11 am, and 6 pm. As always, your pup’s health is our top priority and our staff is able to accommodate any times outside of these for administering time sensitive medications. All medications will be confirmed at every check-in with your sign off indicating we have everything listed correctly for their stay. Please send in all supplies used to administer medications (pill pockets, peanut butter, etc.). We will not leave medication unattended in a food bowl for safety purposes.
We require all vaccinations to be administered by a veterinarian and ACCR must be provided with a copy from the vet clinic listing either the date administered or the expiration date. Vaccines updated after expiration are subject to a 7 to 14 day waiting period depending on the type of vaccine and how it is given. We have a full copy of our vaccination policy available on our website.
Apple Creek Canine Resort Agreement Form
In Order for Apple Creek Canine Resort to accept my dog into their facility I agree to the following conditions:
My pet has current Bordetella, Rabies and Distemper vaccinations. These vaccinations were administered by a licensed veterinarian or within the parameters of the Apple Creek Canine Resort vaccination policy. I will provide Apple Creek Canine Resort a copy of my pet’s current vaccination records. I understand a waiver can be secured for the distemper vaccination requirement provided my veterinarian provides written communication stating my dog should not receive the vaccine. Waivers cannot be secured for bordetella and rabies vaccines. I understand vaccinations must be updated prior to their date of expiration to avoid a waiting period between administration and my dog’s arrival at Apple Creek Canine Resort. *
I will not hold Apple Creek Canine Resort responsible for illness or the expense related to illness. I have read the information provided to me on the Apple Creek Canine Resort website and available in paper form in regard to CIRDC (Canine Cough).
